Ok, well, silly list and parameters. My first reaction is to say the following... "Charlotte? Dallas? Houston? Up & coming? The cash is on the dresser, the John is back home with his wife & the hooker is at Waffle House"

That settles it...we're definitely getting the new Google HQ2! :yes:

I'm the subcategories, Omaha has better nightlife and shopping than San Francisco or Miami? Really?? Yeah this list is unreliable.

Well, it’s another “feel good” list for what it’s worth..

Keeping this in perspective, it’s at least nice to see Omaha playing in the same neighborhood as other, larger, cities/metros in the top 10 of somebody’s rankings..

I agree with another comment here..send this to Amazon.. Omaha is a sure bet for their new “2nd HQ’s” :;): ..

Ciao..LiO...Peace
Go Cowboys!

My first reaction to this was that the Omaha Yelp community may be more active by population than other communities. Remember, all this data is taken from Yelp data entries. I do not know about other Yelp communities, but having been an Elite Yelper going on 5 years here in Omaha, I can say that it is very organized and very active. And, the Omaha Reader just did an article on Omaha's Yelpers.
